Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The oven burners use an electric glowbar type igniter. That igniter needs to be on to keep the gas valve open during baking. The igniters are shown as numbers 76, 217 & 218 in the diagram at the link below. Each igniter draws about 4oo watts while on.
Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

There is no replacement igniter that will work to draw less energy. There are Direct Spark Ignition models, sure. All manufacturers have them, you just need to specify to the salesperson that you prefer that type of oven ignition system. They only spark at ignition. The model below requires no electricity at all.
According to the service information, that model has a 914 watt convection element, a 1200 watt broil assist element and a 1200 watt bake drawer element. The broil assist element will cycle on and off, depending on the broil setting, but will be mostly on. That range would not be a good choice for your application. If you are looking for low energy consumption, you will not find a true convection oven that does not use an electric element for convection. The model below has no broil element but still uses a 914 watt convection element and a warming drawer element.
No, the control would detect an issue with the element and show an error code.
